Xbox Live Gold Free Games Coming Every 1st and 16th

Microsoft has surprised the gaming community yet again with the announcement of the first two games that will be available for their ‘Games for Gold’ feature. For those that are not aware, Microsoft is following in the very correct shoes of PlayStation in that if you pay a monthly subscription for their services online, you will be rewarded with two free games per month on the first and sixteenth of every month for the year. I think this is an amazing idea but that being said, I am a gamer that can appreciate a game even after I have played it once and it is considered ‘old’.

According to Joystiq, this will begin in July and the two games are going to be Assassin’s Creed 2 and Halo 3. This is not some limited time offer or something Microsoft is doing to ‘justify a subscription’ as some have put it but a reward to the community which they have recently proven, they listen to. I have nothing to complain about if Microsoft is going to offer me free things but the minute I have to pay more money for it to continue or if this is a demo to spend more money, that’s where I have to draw the line.

The gaming community is still calming down from all of the drama that has recently ensued with Microsoft over their restrictive policies for the Xbox One and the removal of those same policies but that does not give any gamer the reason to question why Microsoft is doing this. According to all of the other posts out there on the internet right now, this is something we should all be extremely happy about and realize that Microsoft is just taking it a step further for those that decide to stay loyal.
